    I like this recipe a lot as I usually have all of the ingredients in my house without having to buy anything special. It has been well received by all who have eaten it. Two modifications I made: (1) I needed 1/8 - 1/4 cup of extra sour cream (2) I doubled the amount of the brown sugar and butter "topping" that goes next to the pineapple layer.

    Make sure your fruit isn't too wet, or else it won't brown nicely, and I think because this has fruit on the bottom it should be cooked until a dark golden brown because the fruit is the showcase here. Mine didn't turn our as brown and perfect as the pic. So make sure your fruit is blotted dry and for aesthetic reasons, cook it till it is a little darker than you think it needs to be.

    This batter alone is very delicious, I think it needs at least a 1/2 cup of sour cream though, 1/4 C doesn't really do anything. I usually use 1/2 to a full cup of sour cream in any cake I make. I actually put half of the fruit mixture in the batter. I'm thinking next time I'll just put all the fruit in the batter and only decorate with fruit on the bottom of the pan. Also to this recipe I will add a couple tbs. of fresh citrus juice to brighten the flavors. Very delicious.

    Thinking of substituting the mango for peaches. Does anybody know if this could be possible?

    I made this cake for my husband's birthday and it was a big hit! Since it's wintertime, which isn't the best season for mangoes, I used frozen mango halves from Trader Joe's and they worked really well. They were easier to chop too, since they were frozen. I had the same issue with fresh pineapple, so I used canned pineapple slices. I used about 5 slices for the chopped pineapple. (The can had 10 slices.) Thank you for sharing this recipe!
